    The Hockey Thread

    The NHL season is upon us. The greatest game in the world. The coolest game on Earth. Probably the best sport to watch live.

    Who's your team? I'm a Boston Bruins fan. I think they have a great shot at another run for the cup. Their core players are still with the team. They made some decent off season moves and they have a talented young defense. Tuukka Rask is approaching the top of his game.

    It should be an interesting season with the conference and division realignment. I'm thinking Boston and Detroit will finish at the top of the Atlantic Division.

    Coyotes!

    At least we have an owner now. I have zero hope for anything happening this year, but the new boss has said that he plans on increasing player salary money, so there could be a future. They did extend Tippet for another 5 years, so that's something.

    Long-time Rangers fan here.

    Looking for a good run this year out of the boys...new coach, new system, full year of Nash, good signings in Pouliot and D. Moore, Staal back at 100%, Defense more experienced/mature, and with Hagelin and Callahan out for the start of the year, time for Miller and Krieder to step up. Going to be a fun year!

    It seems like all my friends, besides hometown friends, are either Rangers or Red Wings fans. I did expect NYR to be a lot better last year.

    I'm a Canucks fan. I watched a little hockey when I was a kid, because it wasn't really televised, so I was kind of a Kings fan by default (that's who they showed when I saw a game). I really got into it once I got married (wife and step son from Vancouver) and am now a Canucks fan.
